Chelsea and Porto, Group D also includes Spanish club Atlético who are also one of the favorites to get into the first knockout round from this group. Naturally, both teams will like to have a favorable result in the match, knowing that Atlético Madrid is also in the race. Madrid Chelsea would like to capitalize on their home advantage to pick up 3 points, while Porto would be happy even if they can come up with a draw.
"The first objective is to reach the final," Ancelotti said on Monday. "We want to arrive at the final before we think about winning it."It is not easy to reach the final but I think we have the possibility to do this."We have to try to do our best. We have a very strong team with fantastic players and a fantastic mental attitude."
Chelseausually start their Champions League group campaign with a win (five out of the last seven years), Porto, as ever, come into this match on the back of some fine domestic form.

Well, there is no doubt, Chelsea has a very strong squad and so far this season, they have been impressive in English premier league, winning all of their five games, and besides won the Community Shield at the start of the season. Besides home advantage,
Chelsea has another positive side and that is- five of their regular players played for Porto in the past. So, it would be easier for them to know the weak points of the side as they are familiar with Porto’s style of football. Still, I do not think Chelsea can afford to take Porto lightly.
